Luis Figo has revealed Florentino Perez apologized to him for the scathing remarks the Real Madrid president made about him in the leaked audios released by El Confidencial.

Perez was critical of Figo in one of a number of audio clips which have been published by El Confidencial.

"Luis Figo is the one who pisses off the dressing room. He has been a son of a b**ch, like Raul. The two bad eggs were Figo and Raul. The best was Zinedine Zidane, without a doubt," Perez said in the leaked clips.

Figo, who is a former Real Madrid star, was not the only player to have been criticised by Perez in the leaked tapes, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Iker Casillas and Raul Gonzalez among those the Los Blancos president slammed.

And, Figo has now revealed Perez apologised to him for the remarks, and the former Portuguese international sees the matter as closed.

"I believe that, in a private conversation, there can be expressions that are out of context." Figo said after 'El Clasico Legends' match in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, as quoted by Marca.

He added: "As I said, it was a private conversation, and [Perez] apologised, so for me the matter is closed.
